Thanks for the info Mike.

I parked the car a foot over to the right last week as I wanted to get the ladders out over the weekend to clean the windows. I've just backed it out of the garage and I forgot so it clipped the mirror and the cover flirted off and its broken one and split the other of the retaining clips, stupid flimsy $hit. The part number on the label says 5K0 857 538 D5Q - £28.30

(1) Got folding mirrors.
(2) Employed a window cleaner.
(3) Gone to Specsavers.

Sorry to hear about this.
1) Makes very little difference to the width.
2) So they can see whats in the house were you hide your keys and so rob you and steal your car.
3) Stuff happens, i distroyed a door in the winter, and someone here has had how many repairs to their GTI now :wink:

Keith sorry to hear this at least its a quick fix and not a side of the car. I would much rather hit a mirror than the side.
